Nicki Minaj Says “Anaconda” Music Video Should Be Nominated for Video of the Year in 2015 MTV VMAs
Nicki Minaj has one question for MTV: Why isn't "Anaconda" video nominated for this year's Video Music Awards? The Queen of the Barbz took to Twitter to ask why her video for the Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" flip wasn't given a nod for Video of the Year and Best Choreography. Instead, "Anaconda" received nominations for Best Hip Hop Video and Best Female Performance.
To Nicki's credit, she has a strong case. Her video for "Anaconda" racked up a whopping 19.6 million views in its first 24 hours, setting a new VEVO record. It already went platinum and produced some of the sexiest moments in video history. The choreography has been performed by supermodels and there was the time thousand of cardboard cutouts of Minaj were neatly arranged on the steps of a cathedral in Helsinki, Finland.

Hey guys @MTV thank you for my nominations.
